The German Football Association have been fined 25,000 euros over the behaviour of a section of their supporters at Euro 2012.
German fans were accused of displaying a neo-Nazi banner during the Group B game against Denmark in Lviv, as well as singing offensive songs and letting off fireworks.
UEFA have now reprimanded the DFB, having found the country’s fans guilty of ‘improper conduct’.
“The German Football Association (DFB) has been fined 25,000 euros by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body,” a statement released on Monday read.
“The charges relate to the improper conduct of their supporters at the UEFA EURO 2012 Group B match against Denmark in Lviv on Sunday 17 June.
“An appeal can be lodged against this decision within 24 hours of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.”
Germany won the game 2-1, with Lars Bender popping up with the winner with 10 minutes remaining after Michael Krohn-Dehli had earlier cancelled out Lukas Podolski’s opener.
Russia and Croatia have previously been fined by UEFA over the actions of their supporters in Poland and Ukraine.
